Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session brings together policy makers, business and civil society to discuss how to best enable the Internet of Things (IoT). In the coming decade billions of devices in homes and businesses will be connected.

The workshop will enable an interactive exchange and discussion in six areas:

• Openness: The development and deployment of IoT needs to be inclusive, innovation promoted and the role of competition underlined.
• Trust: IoT devices and systems will collect and store enormous amounts of public and private data often in new realms of our daily lives. This should be subject to the highest standards and good practices that enable the protection of personal privacy and the exploitation of public goods that such data may enable for economic and social development.
• Access to (public sector) information: Public sector actors need to view sharing data as a key function. Private sector actors may need new frameworks in which they can share data, which could be beneficial to society as a whole.
• Numbering: The deployment of IPv6 is essential to the IoT as well as the role of other identifiers that extends to the numbers in mobile networks, such as telephone and IMSI-numbers.
• Spectrum: Many IoT devices will require wireless connections. Access to spectrum is therefore critical.
• Jobs and skills: IoT will push a further revolution in manufacturing, transport and many other fields with implications for skills and employment.

It is critical that all stakeholders identify the governance issues and share best practices.
